ultrasound results : worried, what do they mean?

My ultrasound results showed that 2 of the 3 complex cysts are seen to contain multiple thin septations and the septations have dotted microcalcifications. there was no cervical adenopathy. does that indicate  benign or a malignant cysts? ? ? how serious is the microcalssifications? ? ?

FNA biopsy is needed to determine this.  Microcalcifications are suspicious, but FNA biopsy is the best test to figure out if this is cancer or benign complex cysts.

the fna result sounds like a benign cyst
would consider sending the slides for an expert second opinion to confirm.
If these nodules are not causing symptoms and are benign, would observe without surgery
